David Peralta hit a two-out RBI double in the 13th inning as the Arizona Diamondbacks spoiled Dan Jennings’ debut as manager by beating the Miami Marlins 3-2 on Monday night.

Jennings gave up his job as Marlins general manager to move into the dugout and replace Mike Redmond, who was fired on Sunday.

Arizona broke a four-game losing streak. The Marlins lost their fourth in a row and seventh in eight games.

Rubby De La Rosa pitched a career-high nine innings for the Diamondbacks. Yasmany Tomas had a two-run double in the fourth for Arizona.

Addison Reed (1-2) pitched around two walks in the 12th inning. Diamondbacks rookie Enrique Burgos earned his first career save.

Steve Cishek (1-4) took the loss.

Marlins rookie J.T. Realmuto hit his first major league homer in the seventh, a two-run shot that ended a 15-inning scoreless streak for Miami.

WHITE SOX 2, INDIANS 1, 10 INNINGS

In Chicago, Carlos Sanchez singled home the winning run with two outs in the 10th inning to give Chicago a victory over Cleveland after a sparkling pitchers’ duel between aces Chris Sale and Corey Kluber.

The reigning AL Cy Young Award winner, Kluber struck out 12 and allowed five hits and one run for the Indians. Kluber was making his first appearance since his outing on Wednesday last week against St Louis when he struck out 18 and allowed one hit in eight scoreless innings for his first victory of the season.

In that game, Kluber matched Bob Feller’s team record for strikeouts in a nine-inning game, and became one of five pitchers in baseball history to strike out 18 or more without walking a batter.

Sale tossed eight innings and gave up one run on four hits while striking out seven.

Avisail Garcia drew a leadoff walk in the 10th on four pitches from Zach McAllister (0-2).

Zach Duke (2-2) worked a hitless inning for the win.

BLUE JAYS 10, ANGELS 6

In Toronto, Jose Bautista homered and drove in three runs as Toronto ended a season-worst five-game losing streak by beating Los Angeles.

Bautista and Russell Martin, who had a go-ahead single in the sixth inning, each finished with three hits.

Albert Pujols, David Freese and Chris Iannetta hit solo homers for the Angels, who lost their second straight after winning the previous five.

Roberto Osuna (1-0) worked 1-2/3 innings for his first major league win.

Mike Morin (1-1) was the loser.

BREWERS 3, TIGERS 2

Back in the lineup a day after being hit in the head by a ball, Carlos Gomez led off the game in Detroit, Michigan, with a home run and added a tiebreaking single in the seventh inning to lift Milwaukee over Detroit.

Gomez was hit in the left earflap by a 154.5kph fastball from New York Mets rookie Noah Syndergaard on Sunday, but played in the series opener at Detroit and began the game with a drive to left off Kyle Lobstein (3-4).

With the score tied at 2 and two outs in the seventh, Gomez singled up the middle to score Luis Sardinas from second.

Jeremy Jeffress (1-0) earned the win. Brewers reliever Jonathan Broxton worked through a jam in the eighth and Francisco Rodriguez finished for his eighth save in as many chances.

Aramis Ramirez homered for the Brewers.

ATHLETICS 2, ASTROS 1

In Houston, Texas, Brett Lawrie hit a tiebreaking single in the sixth inning and the Oakland bullpen combined for 4-2/3 scoreless innings as the Athletics ended a four-game losing streak with a victory over Houston.
